S1 is a complete disappointment. I purchased a Sonos 5 speaker last year only to find out it was incompatible with my existing Sonos speakers of the same age. I was able to install S1 and connect it but only after hard wiring it to Ethernet. After having to unplug it for a month, the app won't find it, so I started over again. I finally got it connected this morning. I went to play music again at bedtime and the app already forgot the speaker, even though the speaker picked up where it left off.

Update 1/24: do not recc. App needs support. So many issues for such an expensive product is unacceptable. Lacks functionality. Can't control volume unless you're in the app. Yesterday, every time I opened the app to control the music, it kept bringing me to a speaker that hadn't been in use instead of the active speaker. track time is often wrong: songs starting from the beginning but showing 0:25. Only providing treble and bass sliders is insufficient. Vol stabilization btw tracks is poor.

Constantly "unable to connect" and I'm constantly resetting all my speakers. As an example of how bad this app is, Spotify will be playing through one of my speakers and the S1 app can't find the speaker while it is playing! And every time I open the app I am notified of new terms of service. No way to get rid of this notification
